These markers are a bit tricky to color with, but I think the image turned out beautiful. I used the Ranger Stamping Paper for the base. Then used Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet to color her dress. To achieve the shading I just put a small amount of water on the paper before applying the ink. Then I spread the ink with a water brush, and tapped the excess water away with a paper towel to keep the paper from buckling. Here is a close up of the girl.
In this photo, you can see the Prima Cabbage roses were also painted with the Tim Holtz Spun Sugar pen, I put streaks of color onto the roses then used the water brush to spread the ink around. This technique gave the flowers a variegated look.
Do you have the Distress Markers? If so, how are you using them.
